Renewable fuels are advanced fuels made from biomass, organic matter used as fuel. Renewable fuels are certified drop-in replacement fuels, meaning they are completely compatible and interchangeable with conventional fuels. Common types of renewables include renewable diesel, bio-diesel, sustainable aviation fuel, renewable gasoline, and hydrogen.
Renewable fuels receive some of the most favorable Greenhouse Gas reduction scores. Renewable diesel, for example, scores high in existing programs like the federal Renewable Fuel Standard (RFS) program and the California Low-Carbon Fuel Standard (LCFS) program. As such, they are becoming increasingly attractive to businesses and program participants.
